This is a jungle survival and warfare blade similar in shape to the famous Bolo designs popular in the Pacific Theatre in WWII. This blade is one quarter inch thick at the spine, but thins quickly via the full flat grind to form a fairly fine edge, the geometry produces a sharper blade than most other TOPS knives arrive with. This knife comes with a TOPS whistle and a TOPS ALRT XL Utility fixed blade.

Onix Pyro says:

I don’t get why tops does not offer some better sheaths so that you could just directly get a full package…I want to get this blade but I would have to find someone to make a custom sheath for it and that’s a pain and costs a lot…a basic condor like leather sheath would be killer…just add $40 to the price

SuperGvarr says:

can you do a review of the TOPS M4x punisher?

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Thanks, I will check them out!

alberto gorin says:

only add mi name alberto

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Thank you. I think you hit all the main points exactly right!

Orion says:

of all the knives I have test against my Power Eagle in chopping ability, edge durability and toughness,only a Condor Village Parang equaled her. The Power Eagle is a paragon chopper and well worth the money. The only let down is the factory sheath (not very high quality) and the shock cord on the handle, remove it straight away and replace with a paracord over-the-thumb lanyard.

DShiflet01 says:

Look like a nice blade, but $160 for this, vs $40-50 for a Condor? No way I could justify even considering this one:-/

Weapons Education says:

You have the best knife channel, I love it!

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

They should hook a brother up LOL

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

LOL thanks. As you heard, there was some kind of drunken party down the street and occasional drunk people yelling at the top of their lungs LOL

DaiReborn says:

that alert knife… doesn’t gavkoo make something almost identical? His Wigydashi?

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Thanks, David!

Hunter Blackstone says:

I don’t know why but I love that sound a knife makes when it cuts wood

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Hell yeah lol

GunznGear says:

To be honest, I thought the Power Eagle was kinda light for it’s size, when I first got mine. It really has proven, to me, to be a very capable large knife. The Power Eagle is becoming one of my favorites as a large camping/survival type of knife. Thanks for sharing your thoughts

Coolnicknameguy says:

does it feel good in the hand? is the handle comphy?

vanrickenstien says:

This or the esee junglas?

ShooterMedic says:

what a great great Knife!

vanrickenstien says:

Which one chops better if I may ask? It looks like they weigh the same?

Something Dreadful says:

this things looks cool, but i couldn’t ever afford it.

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Thanks, bro! I’m glad to hear you like TOPS, I know you have a lot of bushcrafting experience behind your assessments.

Zavance says:

Dude u really have somthing against those trees

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Yes it would. This was actually a couple weeks ago, since then we had a sh*tload of thunderstorms!

Chantz Percy says:

honestly TOPS knives are just way overpriced for their performance.

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

This, first :]

Orion says:

I have tested the Power Eagle on 4″ pine boards against many knives and the only one that equals it is the Condor Village Parang, full flat grind is the reason for this, a flat grind chops (penetrates into wood) better then another grind from what I have seen. The TOPS Power Eagle is the top-of-the-line in machete’s, expensive but very good.

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

thanks Alberto :]

schizm101 says:

you need a large chuck of wood like in karate kid part2 , where they go practice on it

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Yes I will, I’ve had that one for a while

chris baker says:

Do you know how much this cost? Is it on amazon?

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

about $165, at Knifeworks
